FBI warns of tax rebate scam

Con artists are exploiting consumers' hopes of receiving those tax rebates.

The FBI warns taxpayers that scam artists are calling consumers claiming to be with the IRS.

The con asks for a social security and bank account numbers in order to send the rebate.

The FBI says this is a ploy to steal your identity.

The government never asks for personal information over the phone or by e-mail.
